In addition, you will be the lead on Data Protection and GDPR legislation, providing support and guidance as required.

Your background must include significant experience in corporate governance requirements and company secretarial matters, while considerable experience in dealing with data protection regulations and knowledge of Charities Commission regulation is desirable.
